Janhvi shared with Pinkvilla, “It was long ago I remember staying in our Juhu house, papa was smoking a lot. I think it was around the time of No Entry, Wanted, and every morning, me and Khushi would find new ways to destroy his cigarette packets. So, either we’d go and cut up his cigarettes or I’d open it and put toothpaste on it. Nothing worked, and Mom would also keep fighting with him.”
“She became vegetarian. She said I won’t eat non-veg till you stop smoking and the doctors were like no you are too weak. You need to eat more, and she was like no. And Papa would beg her. And then finally, four-five years ago, he was just like she wanted me to stop. I couldn’t do it then. I’ll do it now,” Janhvi added.
